What's your story? Where are you from? How do you find yourself in the C-U area? How long have you lived here?
I grew up on a farm in Vermilion County. We raised hogs on pasture and grew corn, soybeans, and produce for farmers markets and some C-U restaurants. The closest town was Hope, but it was too small to have a post office. People would spray paint "less" on the sign, which was pretty accurate. No one from my high school was going to get to farm back then. 

Perfectly Imperfect

Common Ground Food Co-op is imperfect, and I know it.

I know it’s imperfect because it is a great co-op, and a truly great co-op is an organic, growing living thing that reflects the imperfect, messy, human community it exists to serve. Common Ground has evolved in so many ways since it was founded in 1974. Over 40 years, CGFC has been a constant dialogue of values, approaches, needs and wants of thousands of owners, staff and board members. Another change in the constant evolution that is Common Ground is upon us now.

ALL ABOUT SALADS

Right now is the perfect time to enjoy a crisp, cool, refreshing salad. We love making salads with the fresh, organic produce from our local vendors. Whether it's a salad from our grab'n'go, salad bar, or a salad made at home, we've highlighted some of our favorites!
